Daniel Radcliffe may not be in any rush to return to Hogwarts. He has not, though, ruled out entering any other film franchise.
Speaking to Time Out London, the 23 year old actor said that he would love a supporting role in the new Star Wars franchise. “Star Wars would be awesome. That’d be crazy cool.”
In the interview he also said that movie franchises shouldn’t be treated as a dirty word, partly due to directors such as JJ Abrams and his Star Trek movies.
"If directors like JJ Abrams and Joss Whedon keep doing what they’re doing, it won’t be."
The boy wizard star has said that should J.K. Rowling write an unlikely eighth part to the Harry Potter books, it would take a lot of conversation to convince him to return to the franchise.
"I’ve done so much work to establish myself as something outside that series I’d be really hesitant to go back. I’m 23, which is too old to be running round in a schoolboy’s cape.”
If the films are remade in the future for a new audience, Radcliffe would be happy to come back as James Potter, Harry’s dad. “I’d never totally close the door. But no more schoolboy stuff. A cameo as Harry’s dad? That would be perfect!”
The 23 year old star will be next seen treading the boards in The Cripple of Inishmaan in London’s Noel Coward Theatre from 8 June.
